We're inviting 40 performing arts professionals in time for TPAM 2018

For TPAM 2018, we're, again, inviting 40 professionals engaging in creation of contemporary performing arts.

Another week of Performing Arts begins in Yokohama from February 10 to 18, where professionals in the field all gather to interact, discuss challenges, and build their networks.
Now in our third year since we began to work with TPAM in their programs focusing on Asia, we will still continue to bring the rich and diverse performing arts of Asia to a wider audience.
